Tango Drills on Zoom 8 Times a Week!
Monday - Thursday
12pm & 5:30pm MT
Join us for our weekly Dance Workout where we cycle though a culmination of Jaimes & Christa's Tango dance exercises that they have created together. These dance exercises are for solo dancers, and have individual topics for each workout session of the week.
I've been dancing tango for over 10 years and have never had as profound a learning experience as I've had for the past 2+ years that they are my teachers. Jaimes and Christa are "Master" dancers and teachers in the truest sense of the term. I gratefully continue to learn from them both and be inspired by them both.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
The knowledge, enthusiasm, encouragement, and passion that 8th Style Tango embodies while teaching this most complex dance has made learning Tango the most fun and rewarding challenge I’ve undertaken in a long time. They are the best of the best, 10/10!
Fantastic place to learn and dance. I've lived in and taken tango classes in many cities, Jaimes and Christa are the best teachers and some of the best people you'll ever meet.
